Even those of us who love winter can sometimes get a little nutty if we don’t get outside frequently enough. The same is true for our kids. That’s why this morning I was happy to see my county’s Facebook page share a printable winter scavenger hunt sheet. The scavenger hunt comes from CBC Parents.
The CBC Winter Scavenger Hunt is a PDF that you can download and print for free. The scavenger hunt has four categories. Those categories are things to find (and pick up), things to look for, things to listen for, and things to feel. Print the sheet, put on your snow boots, and head outside to help your kids find the things in the scavenger hunt.
A Book of Outdoor Activities for All Seasons
When I was a kid a great source of winter activity ideas was The American Boy’s Handy Book. It is full of hands-on outdoor activities for kids. It was originally published in 1882 but is still in print and available on Amazon. It’s also available to view for free through Google Books.
